"Saltwater" is a song by Chicane featuring the vocals of Irish singer Máire Brennan. The track uses parts of Clannad's 1982 hit "Theme From Harry's Game" with both re-recorded and newly written lyrics.

It was released as a single in 1999, reaching the number six position on the UK Singles Chart and becoming a popular trance track in clubs across Europe. In 2003, the song was used in a national tourism campaign for Ireland and also by Belfast City Council in adverts promoting the city.[1]
